For all The Arcade Fire's global conquest and expansive approach, it would appear that Will Butler - famed as a multi-instrumentalist in said combo - has a fair few musical axes left to grind, as this sharp and diverse collection proves. Genre constraints are nimbly eluded here as Butler sashays in style between Gun Club-style rock, mournful balladry, angular synth-pop and many other shapes besides, all the while maintaining an impassioned delivery, relentless mischief, and moreover sidestepping the occasional grandstanding approach of his dayjob for a playful sense of fun that renders 'Policy' a refreshing blast on its own terms.
